Why are so many objects in space shaped like discs?

Spinning discs are everywhere – just look at our solar system, the rings of Saturn, and all the spiral galaxies in the universe. Spinning discs are the result of two things: The force of gravity and a phenomenon in physics called the conservation of angular momentum. Gravity brings matter together; the closer the matter gets, the more it accelerates – much like an ice skater who spins faster and
